Mr. Rierden


I have been a student of history my entire life.  As a child I would explore the world through maps and charts, and lose myself in the stories of distant places.  Teaching social studies is a dream come true.  I have worked in many industries prior to coming to BCSD.  My undergraduate work in administration lead me to a career in banking over-site with the FDIC.  I later fulfilled another lifetime dream when I joined Continental Airlines as a First Officer based in Cleveland, OH.  Life is a funny thing.  Change comes when you least expect it.  I left flying and entered the Master Teacher Program at John Carroll University.  My family and I relocated to our new state in 2005.  We are a teaching family.  My wife and I are privileged to be on the staff at the middle school and high school.  I have a Masters Degree in Education and am certified K - 8 for all subjects, 6 - 12 for social studies, and K - 12 as an exceptional child specialist.
